Press Statement 14 November 2015

Press Statement from the Council of Bristol Mosques:

Published Saturday 14 November 2015

We will all have woken up to this heart wrenching and sickening news that our fellow Parisians are once again the victims of terror. Our prayers, thoughts and condolences are for those who have perished and for the families, friends and communities of France in this difficult horror struck moment.

The Muslim community of Bristol is equally appalled by these heinous and murderous acts of terror. The perpetrators have again misused and hijacked the name of Islam and together we will all continue to stand against the thwarted ideologies that these extremists use to divide our communities.

We stand in solidarity and compassion with the people of France. We ask everyone that in the days and weeks ahead to raise the energy to stand side by side not only to condemn these acts but show our strength in unity, the Bristol way.

Peace Vigil (6 August 2015)

On a beautifully sunny afternoon in August 2015, over fifty of us gathered on College Green in Bristol to Stand Together for Peace. The Bristol Multi-faith Forum had organised this Peace Vigil in light of recent events in Tunisia, France, Kuwait and across the Middle East, and ten years on from the events of 7/7. We were joined by The Mayor, The Lord Mayor, High Sherriff and Police Commissioner, as well as representatives from various faith communities across the City, who all shared a few words and prayers - and a one minute silence was observed. It was a truly beautiful day in all senses. For a full list of all those who spoke at the event please see our website: http://bristolmultifaithforum.org.uk/peace-vigil/
